What would you do with a 40 gigabits/sec fiber-optic connection?


While many internet users are stuck with connection speeds that are well under 1 gigabit, a 75 year-old Swedish woman named Sigbritt Lothberg is able to get 40 gigabits per second! To bad she only uses the internet for reading web-based newspapers.

At her connection rate she’d be able to download full-length movies in literally two seconds! Hafsteinn Jonsson and Lothberg’s son are the ones that built this fastest residential uplink in the world. They were able to connect two routers 1,240 miles apart without any transponders.

Please come to my house and give me that connection, please!
